Subject: REALLY kidz ?
Subject: True to its billing
Other than the opener, it's a pretty standard '78 show. It starts out strong with the Ollin Arrageed>NFA and slowly drifts downhill. The Scarlet>Fire and Truckin' are among the worst versions I've ever heard- lyrical and musical fuckups abound.

Subject: I was there in 78
Bill Walton was stretched out on the steps with his broken leg and told us "You can't go up there man." He was truly wasted.
It was a great time and a fantastic concert.
Subject: C'mon Now
Subject: Not so bad
For the guys to be half way around the world, with all the challenges that presents, this ain't half bad. The effort is there, and quite a few times they pull off some really good songs. I can't point to one on this show that is inherently bad, and I found myself dancing at my desk quite a few times.
There is a lot of unique playing here, and examples of experimentation I have not heard anywhere else. A noble effort, and nothing to be ashamed of, that's for sure.
That being said, the sound is a little muffled but listenable. There are some unfortunate gaps/cuts, and some untimely fades.
Ultimately, though, I like it!
Subject: Not so mystical
Subject: Vision through the temporal rift
By the way........Jerry finally made it out of the astral plane. He wants to thank all of the Dead Heads for praying for him and helping him to escape the clutches of his own trappings following his passage beyond. He's recuperating and told me to say hello.
Listen to this show and feel the vortex from the unity of your chakras flowing in synch with the ancient vibrations. It's Cool!!!
